Bear Republic's Red Rocket Ale is pretty good. It pours a deep, shiny brown with not much head. The aroma is much like a Scotch ale with some mild caramel apple and bready notes. The taste is good. Malty, rich, and not too sweet, but with a little molasses going on and a bit of hoppy burn in the finish. Not a whole lot of burn, but enough to mention. This thing borders on strong. If Arrogant Bastard knocked up Fat Tire, the baby might taste like this.
